MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, was captured on camera sharing a touching moment with the late cricket great Sunil Gavaskar after his team lost to the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 2023 match. Gavaskar, who is currently a member of the IPL 2023 commentary team, ran up to the wicketkeeper-batter and got his autograph on his shirt while Dhoni and the CSK players were doing a lap around the Chepauk to distribute goodies to the fans. The two then exchanged hugs.
Later, Gavaskar acknowledged that he wasn’t ready for it and that as soon as he found out, he borrowed a pen to get Dhoni’s autograph.
“I borrowed a pen as soon as I heard they were going to do this thing (take a lap around the Chepauk).” So I carried it around with me. Gavaskar expressed his gratitude on Star Sports.”I borrowed a pen as soon as I heard they were going to do this thing (take a lap around the Chepauk).” So I carried it around with me.

“Who can fail to admire him? He has over the years accomplished incredible things for Indian cricket. The fact that he has been a good role model is, in my opinion, the most crucial factor. India legend said, “The way he’s handled himself has been absolutely fantastic. There are many young people in India who look up to him.
